The University of Kent strives to make working for employees with, or starting, a family as easy as possible. To this end we have a number of established policies for family situations. Flexible Working and all policies under the Work/Life Balance section of the HR website are designed to encompass all caring responsibilities as well as the interests and study which staff balance with their working life.

It is the University’s aim to create a well-managed, flexible working environment that supports staff and their families, promotes welfare, maintains good working practices and provides a productive balance between work and life outside work.
